Broken Nation

Broken Nation

Wednesday 30 April - Professor Joan Beaumont
For many Australians the First World War is the event that defined our nation; larrikin diggers, trench warfare, and the landing at Gallipoli have become part of the Anzac Legend. But it was also the families at home which made the war effort possible with their resilience in the face of hardship, a stoic acceptance of enormous casualty lists and the belief that their cause was just. Join Joan Beaumont, internationally recognised historian and author of Broken Nation, as she brings these war years to life.
